Ten Things To...

Morning and happy Tuesday, y'all. I'm honestly still playing catch up on sleep as we spent a long time last night packing up more of our apartment. It was a Monday date night at the storage unit, woohoo! Today I have a meeting most of the day so my commenting might be a lil spotty, but I promise to make it to all your pretty blogs when I can. 

Today I thought I'd share different things on my radar, but with the Ten for Tuesday twist.

Here are Ten things to...

::Listen To::
Che'nelle's song if your needing a bit of a pump up vibe. Check this video out if you need to feel FIERCE!
This song if you need to focus on a single task, it's the perfect mix of calm and interesting.

:: Try ::
In the market for a new skin regimen, give Lindi Skin a try. Over the weekend my face sadly became a lil sun and wind burned from our early morning bike ride. It was quite angry with me so I was glad to have the Lindi face wash at home to try. The cleanser was SUPER gentle but still left my skin feeling fresh and clean and I loved the smell. The lavender serum not only smelled fabulous it also helped soothe my burnt skin. While this is nowhere NEAR as serious as  I now keep both the cleanser and serum in my gym back to use before or after my workouts. I know it will get the job done, but won't leave my skin feeling dry or itchy before I teach. I can see why someone with sensitive skin would LOVE these products, but I think they work well on any skin type. #trylindiskin #smellsamazing

Even though we're back on the healthy train I'm trying to find a delicious sweet treat to share this weekend at our bon voyage party. I know I should probably keep with an old standby but don't these look amazing? 

:: Watch ::
Yes, I'm a bit late to the party but oh my goodness this movie was just adorable. If you haven't seen it be warned, there are a few UP moments scattered throughout the movie. Oh and if you hate snakes as much as I do, be sure to close your eyes when a red thing falls off a tree. #family #humanasadog #dinosaursareawesome

:: Read ::
I've only perused Marie's website but really want to buy and read her book.  So far her 'spark joy' theory has helped me change my hording sentimental ways and I'd love to learn more about her organization techniques. #purgingbeforethemove

:: Do ::
Have courage, be kind and THROW the kindness around. Be good to others #confettiforall 

:: Buy ::
With the trip to Europe and move closing in, I've been seriously watching my spending habits. Got to be good now to justify a new Italian leather something right? However, I needed to stop by Target to pick up some new storage bins and used the time in the store as an excuse to scoop up a few more necessities. There were high hopes of scooping up some of the cute workout shirts I posted about a few weeks ago, but alas the two in the store were NOT flattering at all. My trip was not in vain though as I grabbed a new travel makeup set to replace my previous SK brushes I misplaced in February [seriously, no idea where they went]. While perusing the Merona aisle I saw my FAVORITE tank camisoles were on sale so I snatch up a few. Y'all, do yourself a favor and go get you some, they are so soft and hold up really well too.

:: Meditate ::
We all need a lil bit of Zen in our life sometimes. Ten wonderful things to keep in mind and don't forget the belly laugh.

:: Taste ::
Love me some tacos and shrimp tacos are a favorite in the springtime. How delicious does the cilantro lime slaw sound? Can't wait to try this with our homemade tortillas #yumyumgood #amouthfiesta!

:: Sip ::
Another lil summin summin I'm wanting to try for our going away party. You know I love me some champs and I thought mixing it with sangria would be a fun springtime treat. Not sure if I'll get as fancy as this pin or just try a simple lil mixology on my own. Have you tried this recipe before? Any tips or tricks?
What are some things on your radar right now?


Before you leave, I have to share one more fabulous piece of news. My sweet, sweet, friend Jess of The Newly is expecting and I am over the moon and excited for her and her sweet lil family. If you have a minute head over to her blog and give her some congratulation love.

***I was provided Lindi Skin products for review, but as always all opinions are my own**

I'm feeling quite parched after seeing that sangria recipe ;) Hope you knock out a lot more packing so you can relax and enjoy the bon voyage party (and tons of good food!).

Emily said...

That's so exciting Europe is coming up but I'm sure the unknown might also be scary for your move but I'm sure everything will work out. I could so with some of the champagne sangria this weekend lol Looks like the perfect drink for brunch!

Kait said...

Holy crap those cupcakes look delicious! I read your entire post and all I could think about, I hope she makes those so I can see how they turn out!

Brettni @ Bringing Up Brumfields said...

Sangria. Hello, beautiful. =)

Klein Dot Co said...

I want to BE that author. I didn't realize she had another book besides the Tidy Up one? Definitely purge PRE move. We didn't (because we hid all our junk to show the house), and ended up paying to have it moved cross-country (ick). It would have been so much nicer to just open boxes of things we used and loved.

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

Oh those cupcakes look so good! So if you're packing up your place, where is the party going to be? Or are you just packing up the stuff you know you won't need. I always find it hard to pack way ahead of time because I use a lot of the stuff, hehe. So excited for you!

Laura said...

REally loved the 10 to Zen!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

i am actually looking for new skincare products, so i will have to check those out. i don't want to spend too much but i do want to find things that actually work and i can use for a long time.
i still haven't seen the good dinosaur! i'm saving it for when i need a good, simple cry. hahaha!
the travel set of brushes looks amazing, i'll have to swing by my local target and see if they have it in stock. LOVE those camis! i wear them under everything.
and yes to the 10 to zen, especially the belly laugh! and yes to sangria because duh. lol
